Can you get sport related injuries in your back from not wearing back support?

Yes- but w/ and w/o: You can sustain a significant back injury that may be sports related with and without a back support device. Proper technique (if lifting weights as an example) and proper positioning (if colliding with another player in a sporting event) will be likely more beneficial in reducing risk of sports related back injury.
